  1. Thanks Brian! Is it on the pedal itself or on the frame?
  2. Can someone show me the location of the clutch bump stop in the 69? I for the life of me cant see where it supposed to go. Any diagrams or pictures would be great. Thanks!
  3. I'm compairing my car with Mach 1 seats to your car and other convertables with grande seats.

        what do you think?

      What is the general opinion of these seats in convertables.

  4. Check out Tristar engines in Wisconsin. I just installed a 408 from them, but they have various engine sizes and performance options. They were great to work with and kept me up to speed throughout the build process. I have been very happy with the engine, the parts they use and the customer service.
  5. Topher, my bad, i gave you the wrong patriot numbers. Its H8403-1. I just installed a new 351 crate engine and installed these headers again with no issues.
  6. Topher, I would believe it would be easy for you with an automatic as most of the nightmares with headers and 69 mustangs comes with 4 speeds and power steering set ups. I had zero clearance issues with the Patriot headers and the Pypes exhaust setup. I have the Pypes exhaust system for the 69 with the X pipe and the violator mufflers. Had Flowmasters with a ton of drone. Violators are awesome with no drone. The X pipe is a tight fit but doable. If in doubt google 1969 mustang, automatic with headers and see what comes up.
  7. Just go on Advanced web site and look at the top of the page. Today its 25% off. Or you can google Advanced auto promo codes. Once you checkout there is a box that asks for the "promo" code and it adjusts the price accordingly. I use it all the time for different items.
  8. I have a 69 convertible, 351w, 4 speed and power steering. I use the ceramic Patriot long tubes headers. #H8401-1. Fairly easy to install, even for a 4speed and steering setup. Made a world of difference that I could feel. If you order from advanced auto and use the 20 or 25% promo code, it will take off about $90 bucks for a total of about $320 for a pair of ceramic long tubes.
  9. The Temp rises after when i am cruising above 30 mph. 80 degrees was the temp outside. I didnt have this issue a month or so ago. New aluminum radiator and just replaced the thermostat to a 180 degree. 5 blade fan. I just replaced the pertronix ignitor to a new one, took out distributor and put back in. redid the timing. I replaced a wire on the back of the alternator that had fallen off. the reason i asked about the alternator is that when sometimes it seems like my temp gauge and my my oil pressure gague are above normal when driving and then will "kick down" after a few minutes. Could that be from the 3g alternator?
  10. yes, they are ceramic coated. I dont understand why the temp will be "normal" one time, and then an hour later it starts to peg.
  11. Would installing headers and a new larger exhaust increase the temp in my 351w? After switching out the old stock exhaust manifolds for long tube headers and installing a 2 1/2 exhaust system, my temp seems to rise at times almost to the "H" on my gauge, not all the time but sometimes. Granted i switched everything out in the spring when temps were a lot lower and now its summer. I cant figure out why at times the temp seems to be normal and then at others its close to pegging near the "H". Could this have anything to do with the amount of voltage the system is getting from the alternator at times?
  12. Installed a pair of Patriot ceramic long tubs on my 69 convertible, 351w, 4 speed, power steering. Had to use a 302 zbar. Easy install. Plugs are easy to get to.
  13. How much of a driving difference do you feel going from a non power set up to power?
  14. Looking to replace stock set up with disks in the front and shoes in the back. Any suggestions on replacements to upgrade from stock? Im using the car now in the spring/summer/fall for shows, rides and general driving fun. Im going to keep the non power disk set up and keep the shoes in the back. Thanks!
  15. Has anyone successfully painted or dyed their convertible top? I have a white original top that just needs some refresh and will keep it white. . I’ve used the Westlys bleach white numerous times but it’s time to paint or dye. Let me know your thoughts and ideas on products and applications. Thanks!
